Sounds like a low-budget action movie more than real life, doesn’t it?
The Department of Justice has announced an investigation of the Chicago Police Department for rights violations, likely over things like Homan Square, and Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently fired police superintendent Garry McCarthy over the death of a teen shot 16 times by one of his officers.
Now Chicago police commander Glenn Evans will stand trial this week on charges of aggravated battery and official misconduct in the capture of a suspect for allegedly putting a gun in a suspect’s mouth. The case will be tried without a jury.
Sounds like a mafia more than a police department, doesn’t it? Or… wait, can you even tell the difference anymore?
Meanwhile, another disastrous Chicago police video has been released, this time of an incident where a man named Philip Coleman was tased and dragged down a hall back in 2012. He died in the hospital shortly after the incident. The man’s father has filed a lawsuit against the Chicago PD.
Emanuel, who has been distancing himself from his police department after calls for his resignation in regard to police abuse, had this to say:
“I do not see how the manner in which Mr. Coleman was physically treated could possibly be acceptable. Something is wrong here — either the actions of the officers who dragged Mr. Coleman, or the policies of the department.”
